Chinese take-out is one of those things I crave constantly, but not one of those things I eat constantly. Not that I would mind eating, for example, fried rice with every meal, but you know… gotta consider my *health* and stuff. My best solution for curbing the bad cravings is making them good cravings, or at least better cravings. Our Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice is our attempt at keeping the Chinese cravings under control, and let me tell you, it succeeds. It succeeds BIG time.
Sure cauliflower rice is nothing new and exciting, neither is Cauliflower Fried Rice for that matter. And I’m pretty sure there’s probably a number of Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice out there on the interwebs. What makes ours special though is our homemade white sauce, which is a little bit better for you than the store-bought kind, I’m sure. (I hope, eeek).
It’s another super quick and easy recipe that takes no time and no excuses.
